Lifespan Opportunities in Washington and Hancock Counties

Weatherization

Introduction

The Department of Energy and Home Energy Assistance Weatherization Programs (DOE/HEAPWx) are used to install energy saving measures in LIHEAP eligible homes to conserve energy and heating costs.

A qualified Home Energy Auditor visits the home to do an assessment of the home's energy use and loss, heating system efficiency and air quality with the use of a blower door test, infrared digital camera and home inspection. Once the home has been assessed and found eligible it is put on a priority list. Homes are weatherized from the list until funding is depleted each year.

We assess air leakage, the heating system, moisture problems, and health and safety issues. Weatherization improvements may include insulation, air sealing, moisture controls, and health and safety measures. The energy auditor's findings will determine which measures are needed.

Eligibility:

  • Client must have a current LIHEAP fuel application and live in the home.
  • Priority is given to households with senior citizens (over 60), children under two years of age, or a person with a disability that makes them hypothermia- vulnerable.
  • Priority is also given to households with the highest fuel consumption.
